The Ethan Allen Homestead has scheduled a special fundraising event for 2:00 pm on Sunday, February 26th .   Rick Norcross, long time leader of Vermont’s premier western swing band, “Rick and the All-Star Ramblers”, will perform a solo concert to benefit the Homestead.  Rick’s entire life has been devoted to music. His performance will feature many songs from his five albums/CDs about growing up and living in Vermont interspersed with anecdotes about his colorful life.   (Just Google his name for details.)  

This event will be special for us as Rick has had a long time love of the Ethan Allen Homestead Museum.  In fact he served on the Homestead’s Board of Trustees in its early years. Please consider giving yourself a memorable true Vermont experience while supporting the Ethan Allen Homestead Museum at the same time.
